The West Michigan Symphony and Music Director Scott Speck are joined by soprano Diane Penning, pianist and vocalist Paul Langford, the WMS Children’s Choir and the Mona Shores Singers as they present a heartwarming mix of classical and modern holiday favorites.
Last year our holiday concert sold out, and tickets are about to start selling fast!
PARENTS/SIBLINGS OF STUDENTS IN SINGERS ONLY!
You are getting this message now so you can get your seats reserved for the holiday concert before they sell out. At this point there are still great seats available, but they will start filling up fast in November. The symphony’s first mailing to over 700 homes (and an email to almost 900 more addresses) that includes a reminder to get tickets to this popular concert goes out next week – the week of Monday, 10/19.
My best advice to you is to call Rita at 231-726-3231 to reserve your tickets this week to get the best seats available to see your child perform in this concert before the general public snaps them up! Your discounted rates for single tickets (FOR PARENTS/SIBLINGS IN “SINGERS” CHOIR ONLY) are $37, $21, $17 and $10 for students. Please mention that you are getting the “WMS Children’s Choir” or “Mona Shores Choir” discount when you call.
Once again, the Holiday Pops concert is Friday, December 11 at 7:30 pm at the Frauenthal Theater, 425 W. Western Ave., Muskegon. Tickets can be purchased by calling Rita at 231-726-3231 x 223, by stopping in to the ticket office at 360 W. Western Ave., 1st floor in Muskegon. Your discount is not available online.
